I have been visiting Lost Rhino for almost 2 years now. Their beer is good quality but won't knock your socks off. Recently I went with my family and my Wife which had recently moved in from Puerto Rico and she was denied a beer because she didn't have a "valid US ID". She presented her Puerto Rico driver's license and even offered to present her voter ID which also has a picture and birth date. The bartender said she needed a passport as the Puerto Rico license was not considered a US ID. I tried to explain the lady that her driver's license was as valid as any other US state or territory license but she refused to accept it.
I wonder if they refuse service to anyone from outside of the continental US because they don't have a valid US ID. Also, what do they do if a tourist comes in and is not carrying with his/her passport? the 9 of us left the place and took our business to the next brewery down the street which welcomed us and her Puerto Rican driver's licence.
I'm all for the small guy and local businesses, specially breweries that have made their way up by hard work, but if they treat me or my family as lesser beings for being from Puerto Rico, that's enough to end my relationship with them.
